In my 2nd technical round, the interviewer began with the complete discussion of my projects. He asked me everything about them like which technologies I have used, why I have used them, what are the alternatives, what are the real-life applications of these projects. After this, He asked questions on Computer Networks, Operating system, Database Management system and at the end, some of the SQL queries. SQL queries were quite easy, I found one of the queries tricky and harder as compared to other i.e print nth largest salary of the employees. The interviewer also asked me why I was not able to code one of the questions in the coding round. I explained the complete approach of that question and he was quite satisfied. This technical round was of 1 hour long.

There were two panellists in this round and they began with a small introduction. One of them asked me about my capstone project which was based on object recognition task and deep learning. He just told me to explain deep learning in complete detail and how can it be used on my college campus. Then, He asked me what technologies are being used and how I trained my model as the model was quite heavy and computationally intensive. Then, they asked me how I cope up with my team members in the pandemic situation and how I managed to interact with them.
